Independent insurance agents and brokers will get squeezed at every turn, as the basis of premium the customer pays the insurer is shrinking:

  • Commercial premiums, and commission revenues, won’t harden any time soon.
  • Workers compensation audits will result in lower receipts and payroll, and in turn lower premiums or even returned premium.
  • With inventories reduced, lower replacement-cost property premiums will be charged.
  • Business auto policies, based on size and type of fleets that employers have been
    running, will be cut back.
  • Many of those agencies that rely heavily on commercial commission revenue are
    already seeing business clients actually closing their doors, a trend that experts tell us
    will grow until an effective economic reset can be accomplished.
